MecaStack is the most widely used software in the world for designing self-supported and guy wire supported steel stacks. An easy to use Windows based interface allows designers to quickly model a stack.
A 3D model of the stack is automatically displayed on the screen providing a quick visual check of all information entered. The user has complete control over the codes that are used for Along Wind, Across Wind, Stress and Fatigue.
Load Combinations and factors can be customized as needed. The output is easy to navigate, problem areas may be located quickly, and the designer may select the calculations that are presented to the client.
